UPDATE 21/05/17 – new comparison pictures added against various IEMs (Campfire Vega, Andromeda etc)
After one of the most awaited (to put it mildly) product launches on the Head-Fi forums, the Trinity Audio flagship 5-driver IEM (the Phantom Hunter) is now starting to arrive in mailboxes around the globe. If you are one of the many trinity customers waiting for Hunter to arrive, here are a few unboxing shots to keep you going while the postman does his stuff.
Have to say that they look rather “rustic” next to the more “professionally” finished and complete looking Campfire – also the cable connection looks very cheap, same as the cheaper Trinity models cable split material, light aluminium.
Hope they sound better than they look! Obviously the rush to production (joke intended) took its toll. 😦
The pictures don’t quite do them justice – they have quite a unique burnished metal look in direct sunlight, but unfortunately my windowsill isn’t the best place to capture it. The shells are obviously treated separately as they are glued rather than screwed together, so that highlights the join between the two, but they feel very well built in the hand.
Cables are the basic ones provided – the “high end” 8 wire Litz cables (2) are currently being terminated to order by Trinity so did be with me in another fortnight or so – will add a couple of shots contrasting them with the basic cable when they do arrive.
And yes, they do sound good – not decided exactly how good yet, but for my ears this is the best sounding Trinity IEM I have heard yet.
